A 28-year-old female asked:

What is wrong with me when my labia major itches every other day to the point where the skin is broken after scratching. there is no foul smell or discharge and my vagina itself does not itch?

Vaginal itching: This is likely due to some local irritation. I would try OTC hydrocortisone cream 1% three times daily for a week and see what happens.
